De Trafford Perspective 2002

33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc One third each: cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon. This auction wine is a selection of the single best barrel of each variety from our small 3ha Mont Fleur vineyard, 380m up between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains. The soil is a deep red Hutton with an ideal combination of good drainage and good moisture retention. The vines are planted to a relatively high density of 5000 vines / ha ensuring that each vine does not produce much more than 1kg. Matured for 18 months in new French oak. Tasting note: The perfectly ripe fruit shows in the deep colour and intense, complex nose. Rich, powerful wine with a long granular tannin finish.

Winemaker: David Trafford
